It would come as no surprise that financial dysfunction in marriages is a common catalyst to why couples divorce. A recent article was published by Robert Ossers of Source Financial Advisors titled Financial Marriage Counseling.
“First and foremost, I see firsthand now that one of the leading factors attributable to the high divorce rate in this country is related to the management of household finances. While here are a ton of articles on how to plan for divorce, things to gather, how to overcome it and how to make certain that it is equitable, what is surprising is there is so much less on the way into a marriage or for long-time married couples or couples, which I will call “financially dysfunctional,” to create a plan and have an open dialogue around the dreaded topic of money.”
